We are often interested in what fabric is chosen for the outside of our custom window treatments but it is also important to know about what is behind the scenes too.
There are many reasons to line and interline a custom window treatment.
The lining color can be ivory or white or it can be taupe or beige to compliment the outside of your home. Remember your lining will be seen from the outside of your home so that is a consideration when selecting the color. Adding interlining between your fabric and the lining gives you another layer of insulation, as well as adding softness and bulk to your fabric. Dead air space that is created with layers of lining and fabric adds comfort to your home.
Many fabrics like silk or silk-like polyester fabrics are very thin fabrics. They are beautiful fabrics and can become more luxurious when interlined.
As you can see, energy efficiency is not the only reason to add lining to your custom window treatments but at this time of the year, it is an important one.
